This letter is to endorse the candidacy of Todd Greatsinger a concerned taxpayer as well as a proven accomplished professional business leader, who will certainly demonstrate conservative control and balance is addressing such critical issues as the upcoming budget,questionable CVH support and ongoing collective bargaining negotiations at South Fire District.
